Time Management for Online Learners | eLearners - Online Degrees Feeling overwhelmed by all the demands on your time? Isn't it amazing that one of the reasons you chose to take an online college program, or get your degree online, was to save time? However, now it seems what you lack more than anything is time to do it all. As Cindy, who is a 47-year-old working mother with two adult children, ages 21 and 22, and getting her PhD online, found out. Not to worry! Find Out What Is Expected of You from Each Professor/Course I've been teaching at the college level since my early twenties, including an online introductory sociology course, and I know that the syllabus, a document provided at the start of a class that offers an overview of the course, is key. Write Down Due Dates Write down the key due dates from the syllabus in one or more additional places that you will refer to regularly. Create Mini-Deadlines Create your own "mini" due dates that will help you to better monitor your own progress. By what date will you pick your term paper topic?

méthode pour apprendre Comment connaître et maîtriser ce processus? Quelle méthode pour apprendre? Par les profils d’apprentissage. C’est un outil construit sur la base de recherches américaines en psychologie comportementale.

Prenons par exemple le perfectionniste. L’émotionnel, lui, sera peu sensible à cette attitude. .....2ème niveau: Au nombre de 4, les profils de motivations concernent les éléments extérieurs qui conditionnent l’intérêt d’un l’élève. .....3ème niveau: Au nombre de 3, les profils de compréhension permettent de savoir par quel sens (visuel, auditif,…) les informations sont enregistrées. Les kinesthésiques, eux, ont besoin d’un ressenti, d’apprendre en faisant, de comprendre le pourquoi des choses. > Voir les chapitres du livre ....> Acheter le livre

Matters of Individuals in Contexts – Psychology of Language Learning 2 The first international conference “Matters of the Mind: Psychology and Language Learning” was held in Graz, Austria, in May 2014. It was organized on the initiative of Dr Sarah Mercer, and it was a highly successful event. We have taken up the challenge, and will be organising the second international conference with the title “Individuals in Contexts: Psychology of Language Learning 2” to be held in Jyväskylä, Finland, August 22 – 24, 2016. The conference will address among other things such key issues in the field as learners and teachers as individuals with all their characteristics, including self-concept, motivation, identities, beliefs, agency, emotions, strategies, styles, etc., the learning process and its outcomes, and the diversity of contexts. As part of the conference we are proud to announce three plenary speakers: Phil Benson, Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia Maggie Kubanyiova, University of Birmingham, UK Sarah Mercer, University of Graz, Austria

Tips and Strategies for the Successful Online Student by Randy Accetta, Ph.D. Thinking about attending an online university? Online learning is a rapidly growing form of education, and the tools and technologies are constantly evolving. Is your free time important to you? Online learning allows you to maximize your time. Are you a decent writer? Because most online learning takes place in writing, it helps to be comfortable with the written word. Do you want to actively learn material and apply it at your job? Not only does online learning allow you to interact directly with your professional peers from across the country, you'll aslo be able to apply course material directly to your professional situation during case studies and other classroom activities. Do you want to passively be given information? If you want to sit and watch someone talk, then the online learning classroom may not be for you. Do you find yourself juggling a number of responsibilities? Do you have a job and are you over 25 years old? Are you self-disciplined?

Comment tout mémoriser rapidement avec les répétitions espacées Comment mémoriser mes cours ? Comment retenir du vocabulaire anglais ? Des formules de mathématiques ? Des théorèmes de physique ? Essayez les répétitions espacées ! Voilà le genre de question qui hante le cerveau des étudiants de tout âge et de toute condition ! Répétitions espacées : grâce à la courbe d’oubli d’Ebbinghaus En 1885, Hermann Ebbinghaus publiait son livre « La mémoire. Cette courbe montre sans pitié que nous apprenons très vite. Si on étudie un sujet à fond, une seule fois, sans révision, il est impossible de retenir à long terme. Cela explique aussi pourquoi les étudiants qui s’y prennent à la dernière minute peuvent réussir un examen le lendemain ou le surlendemain. L’impact des répétitions espacées sur la mémoire à long terme Alors, est-ce sans espoir ? Non. Cette théorie suppose que, lorsque nous étudions quelque chose de neuf, nous en retenons la majeure partie pendant un temps très court. Que se passe-t-il lors de ces répétitions ? Mais attention ! 1. 2. Comment ?

Why I taught myself 20 languages — and what I learned about myself in the process During the past few years, I’ve been referred to in the media as “The World’s Youngest Hyperpolyglot” — a word that sounds like a rare illness. In a way it is: it describes someone who speaks a particularly large number of foreign languages, someone whose all-consuming passion for words and systems can lead them to spend many long hours alone with a grammar book. But while it’s true that I can speak in 20 different languages, including English, it took me a while to understand that there’s more to language than bartering over kebabs in Arabic or ordering from a menu in Hindi. I began my language education at age thirteen. I decided to experiment. I moved on to Arabic, which I’d study every morning by reading news headlines with a dictionary and by talking to street vendors. By March of 2012, media outlets such as the BBC and The New York Times featured stories about me, “The Teen Who Speaks 20 Languages!” Watch Breaking the language barrier, Timothy Doner’s talk at TEDxTeen 2014.

Qu’est-ce qu’il faut que je change pour faire apprendre en 2016 | Didactique professionnelle 29 février 2016 Henri Boudreault Didactique professionnelle Une chose certaine c’est que le changement est là pour rester. La nouvelle variable à considérer, qui a souvent été négligée dans le but d’éviter le changement, c’est la diversité. En formation professionnelle il y a une diversité d’apprenants qui ont une diversité d’objets de formation à apprendre, ce qui devrait initier une diversité de méthodes et de modalités de formation à mettre en oeuvre. Si l’on veut réellement changer, voici ce qu’il faut considérer : La diversité des apprenants : La diversité des objets de formation : La diversité des méthodes La diversité des facteurs qui favorisent l’apprendre; La diversité des potentiels ; La diversité des théories de l’apprentissage; La diversité des représentations; La diversité des relations d’enseignement; La diversité des styles d’apprentissage ; La diversité des modalités des motivations; La diversité des modalités de formation ; WordPress: J'aime chargement…

The Key to Boosting English Learners’ Language Skills? Challenging Content The English language learner population in the United States is growing quickly, posing a challenge for cash-strapped schools struggling to balance the diverse needs of learners. And while technology is becoming a more ubiquitous part of the school experience, it hasn’t always been used effectively to improve the language skills of English learners. A new curriculum using both online modules and teacher-led instruction developed by Middlebury Interactive Languages in partnership with Hartford Public Schools is showing promise as an engaging way for students working on their English skills to also access challenging content. Middlebury Interactive Languages is known for its online world languages program, but the partnership with Hartford marks the company’s entry into developing a blended-learning program meant for students learning English. In comparison, the Middlebury blended curriculum is grouped by overarching themes and subthemes.

Eleven Ways to Improve Online Classes photo by Maliha Mannan I sit in front of the computer, staring at the screen. I have a general syllabus with little more than standards and goals. The university is giving me a crazy amount of freedom to design this online course. I shake my head, unsure of what I will create. Initially, I think about my own experiences in taking online classes. I step away from the computer and go for a walk. As I slip my phone into my pocket, I am struck by the stark contrast between the connected world of building a startup and the fairly closed-off world of an online course on Moodle. Fixing Online Classes It has me thinking about what it would mean to improve online classes. Use multiple platforms. I don't pretend to know all the answers to online learning. If someone had told me as a child that I would be co-creating two technology platforms with people who lived on the other coast (you know, the coast that gets up way too early) I would have said that they were crazy. But it's here.

La pensée à l’œuvre - Images de pensée : parler en ces termes semble impliquer une mise en image de la réflexion ainsi qu’une mise en espace de processus cognitifs. Dès lors, la cartographie qui représente des relations spatiales produit-elle par le même coup des « images de pensée » ? Il y a un an, Marie-Haude Caraës et Nicole Marchand-Zanartu publiaient un élégant petit ouvrage, Images de pensée, aux éditions de la Réunion des musées nationaux, condensé d’archives de documents non standards longtemps laissés pour compte, aux auteurs parfois illustres. Les deux textes qui encadrent le recueil d’images (signés par Marie-Haude Caraës et Nicole Marchand-Zanartu pour le premier et par Jean Lauxerois pour le dernier) accompagnent intelligemment la lecture et la compréhension de ces formes graphiques complexes et inattendues. Héritage d’une pratique réflexive Chaque représentation projette un monde et se projette dans le monde. [1] 2_ Alfred H.
